Coming up with good ideas is easy, explaining them to strangers is hard. If you’re an entrepreneur and plan to grow your inclusive business, chances are you’ll need to pitch your plans to possible partners, clients and, most importantly, investors.

Convincing them of your ideas is crucial for inclusive business ventures. But how do you structure your pitch? How do you become an engaging speaker? And how do you convince investors that your idea can make an impact and change the world?

In July the Inclusive Business Accelerator organizes an online bootcamp on pitching your inclusive business with help of David Beckett (photo). David Beckett is an experienced pitch coach who helps entrepreneurs make investment winning pitches. He has supported over 130 startups in pitching to investors and his clients have secured over $40 million in investment. He is a TEDx speech coach, and his book ‘Three Minute Presentation’ has reached more than 100,000 readers.

On the online platform you will get access to training videos, background readings and exercises. Central to the bootcamp is the Pitch Canvas©: A tool to help you visualize your whole pitch on a single page. The bootcamp offers the possibility to hand in an assignment to show you have a great pitch. The three best pitches will be selected to receive a personal coaching session with David Beckett (online), worth €500.

Participants that complete the bootcamp get full access to an extensive course platform on pitching (worth € 95). It features exclusive video trainings material, exercises, and a free copy of David Beckett’s book ‘Three Minute Presentation’, which gives you everything you need to become an engaging presenter.
